Founded in 1852, the rich history of Spring Branch started when Hans Heinrich Dietrich Knibbe purchased land for a homestead at one dollar per acre. Eventually, the town formed along banks of Spring Creek, which flows int the Guadalupe River about two miles downstream.
Continuing the water theme, the Guadalupe River State Park provides exceptional family time opportunities in the Texas Hill Country. Boating, fishing, canoeing, tubing, camping, and relaxation go hand-in-hand in this beautiful park. Honey Creek State Natural Area is another fantastic place to visit. As a result, guided tours take you through diverse plants, animals and natural features unique to the Texas Hill Country. Tours start early and no pets allowed, so be sure to arrange your visit in advance.
